Live Chat: The Science of Antiaging
25 January 2012 8:47 am
See below for the chat box. Join us each Thursday at 3 p.m. EST for a live conversation with leading scientists and expert reporters.
What’s the key to living a long life? Is it all in the genes, or are there antiaging strategies that might make a difference? This week on ScienceLive, we’ll chat with experts on the science of aging. They’ll answer your questions on a variety of topics, including whether the human lifespan will continue to increase, what impact antiaging research could have on global demographics, and what the latest research says about what you can do to combat the ill effects of growing older
Join us at 3 p.m. EST on Thursday, 26 January, for a live chat on this page. You can leave your questions in the comment box below before the chat starts.
